TO JUST SHOP AND RELAX. THAT'S WHAT WE DID. WE SHOPPED AND ATE AND DONE
MORE SHOPPING. THEN IN THE EVENING I SAT AROUND THE POOL WHILE GAIL IS
IN THE HOT TUB SOAKING UP THE HOT WATER ON HER ACHES AND PAINS. YOU
FELL GOOD FOR A WHILE AND THEN THE PAINS ARE BACK. BUT ITS JUST NICE
TO GET AWAY. WE THANK THE LORD THAT WE ARE ABLE TO DO THIS FOR WITHOUT
HIS LOVE FOR US AND SUPPLYING OUR DAILY NEEDS NONE OF THIS WOULD BE
POSSIBLE. IT WAS A LITTLE COLD IN THE MORNING BUT TURNED OUT OK. GAIL
LIKES TO SHOP AT THE NEW WAL-MART SUPERCENTER. WHAT A GREAT GAL SHE IS.

JOKE FOR YOU. ITS CHURCH RELATED. IT MIGHT EVEN BE OUR CHOIR.

A CHURCH HAD A MAN IN THE CHOIR WHO COULDN'T SING.
SEVERAL PEOPLE HINTED TO HIM THAT HE COULD SERVE IN
OTHER AREAS, BUT HE CONTINUED TO ATTEND CHOIR PRACTICE.THE
CHOIR DIRECTOR BECAME DESPERATE AND WENT TO THE PASTOR. YOU'VE
GOT TO GET THAT MAN OUT OF THE CHOIR, " HE SAID. " IF YOU DON'T,
I'M GOING TO RESIGN. THE CHOIR MEMBERS ARE GOING TO QUIT, TOO.
PLEASE DO SOMETHING."
RELUCTANLY, THE PASTOR TOLD THE MAN, " PERHAPS YOU SHOULD LEAVE
THE CHOIR." WHY SHOULD I GET OUT OF THE CHOIR? HE ASKED.
" WELL, PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME YOU CAN'T SING."
" THATS NOTHING," THE MAN SNORTED. " FIFTY PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME
THAT YOU CAN'T PREACH!"

SOUND SOMETHING LIKE OUR CHURCH WANTS IN A WHILE. HUH.

OK I'M OUT OF HERE LIKE GONE TO THE WIND.SEE YOU SOON.
